Guys, many might not agree with me. But I am somehow not convinced about using sponsorship for the track days. What we need more importantly is a huge turnout so that we can rope in marshals and some basic common sense on how to drive on a track. And more importantly we need volunteers who will come forward and help people like Sriram and myself who wish to do this more often.

You only have to ask. We could get people who dont own rides to do the marshalling. I am sure there will be atleast 4-5 kids interested in doing this. In return you just let them sit shotgun for 5 or 10 laps

this is all very interesting.A whole world of Indian Motor sport that i didnt know about.
I havent read the whole thread but get the impression that most of you drive more or less a standard - IE road set ups & no roll cages -jap motors and driving them hard on a track with minimal safety takes some *****.
So good luck to all of you.
Soon hopefully there'll be a few more Imprezas & Evos around so they'll become more affordable. Then the serious fun can start. cheers d
